Administrative law by Peter Cane( )

40 editions published between 1993 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,065 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Administrative Law provides a sophisticated but highly accessible account of a complex area of law of great contemporary relevance and increasing importance. Written in a clear and flowing style, the text has been radically reorganized and extensively rewritten to present administrative law as a framework for public administration. After an exploration of the nature, province, and sources of administrative law as well as the concept of administrative justice, the book briefly discusses the institutional framework of public administration. The second part of the book deals with the normative framework of public administration, starting with a general discussion of administrative tasks and functions and then examining in some detail norms relating to administrative procedure and openness, decision-makers' reasoning processes and the substance of administrative decisions. The next topic is the private law framework provided by the law of tort, contract, and restitution. The third part of the book provides an account of institutions and mechanisms of accountability by which the framework of public administration is policed and enforced: judicial review and appeals by courts and tribunals, bureaucratic and parliamentary oversight, and investigations by ombudsmen. This part ends by considering how these various mechanisms fit into the administrative justice system. The final part of the book explores the functions of administrative law and its impact on administration"--

21 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 984 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume of essays examines the nature and scope of engagements between law and religion, addressing fundamental questions such as these. Contributors range from eminent scholars working in the fields of law and religion to important new voices who add vital and original ideas. From conservative to liberal, doctrinal to post-modernist, and secular to religious, each contributor brings a different approach to the questions under discussion, resulting in a lively, passionate, and thoughtful debate that adds light rather than heat to this complex area."--Jacket

The political economy of personal injury law by Peter Cane( )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An introduction to administrative law by Peter Cane( Book )

43 editions published between 1986 and 2004 in English and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like the first edition of this book, this second edition has two main aims: to provide a clear and relatively short statement of the most important rules concerning judicial control of governmental administrative activity; and to provide a wider framework for understanding those rules. This framework is provided by considering the constitutional context of judicial control; the relationship between judicial control and other mechanisms for checking administrative activity; and the impact of judicial control on the agencies subject to it. What emerges clearly from considering judicial control in this wider context is that the role of the courts in adjudicating complaints about governmental administrative action is not that of neutral arbiter but that of active participant in the public decision-making process. It is hoped that this book will provide readers with a concise but critical analysis of the law
Tort law and economic interests by Peter Cane( Book )

30 editions published between 1991 and 1996 in English and German and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines the ways in which the law of tort provides protection against injury to financial assets such as money, property, and contracts. In the past twenty-five years or so, there has been much debate and litigation concerned with the extent to which the law of torts should be involved in compensating for economic loss caused by negligent conduct. Many believe that the primary role of tort law is to provide a system of compensation for death and personal injury and that it has, at most, only a marginal part to play in protecting economic interests. This book is an attempt to examine the whole of tort law in terms of protection of financial assets and of people's interest in creating and preserving wealth. It discusses the concepts and principles which tort law utilizes to this end, and the relationship between tort law and other legal techniques of providing such protection. It focuses primarily on the kinds of financial interests the law of tort protects and on the sort of protection it provides. This approach allows a fresh examination of the functions of tort law and of the justifications, both social and doctrinal, for the imposition of tort liability so far as it is concerned with the protection of wealth

Responsibility in law and morality by Peter Cane( Book )

27 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and Chinese and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lawyers who write about responsibility tend to focus on criminal law at the expense of civil and public law; while philosophers tend to treat responsibility as a moral concept, and either ignore the law or consider legal responsibility to be a more or less distorted reflection of its moral counterpart. This book aims to counteract both of these biases. By adopting a comparative institutional approach to the relationship between law and morality, it challenges the common view that morality stands to law as critical standard to conventional practice. It shows how law and morality interact symbiotically, and how careful study of legal concepts of responsibility can add significantly to our understanding of responsibility more generally. Central to this project is a distinction between two paradigms of responsibility -- the criminal law paradigm and the civil law paradigm. Whereas theoretical discussions of responsibility tend focus on conduct and agency, taking account of civil law reveals the importance of outcomes and the interests of victims and society to ideas of responsibility. The book examines from a distinctively legal point of view central philosophical questions about responsibility such as its relationship with culpability (challenging the common view that moral responsibility requires fault), causation and personality. It explores the relevance of sanctions and problems of proof and enforcement to ideas of responsibility, as well as the relationship between responsibility and distributive justice, and the role of concepts of responsibility in public law. At the heart of this book lie two questions: what does it mean to say we are responsible? and, what are our responsibilities? Its aim is not to answer these questions but to challenge some traditional approaches to answering them and more importantly, to suggest fruitful alternative approaches that take law seriously
The anatomy of tort law by Peter Cane( Book )

20 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and Chinese and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written to be accessible to all readers with a basic knowledge of tort law, this book adopts an approach which is both easily comprehended, yet also innovative and illuminating. It sets out a new and theoretically stimulating analysis of the law of tort, in which the subject is reconceived as a system of ethical rules and principles of personal responsibility. As such it can be viewed as a series of relationships between protected interests, sanctioned conduct and sanctions. These are the 'building blocks' of tort law
Administrative tribunals and adjudication by Peter Cane( Book )

27 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among the many constitutional developments of the past century or so, one of the most significant has been the creation and proliferation of institutions that perform functions similar to those performed by courts but which are considered to be, and in some ways are, different and distinct from courts as traditionally conceived. In much of the common law world, such institutions are called 'administrative tribunals'. Their main function is to adjudicate disputes between citizens and the state by reviewing decisions of government agencies - a function also performed by courts in 'judicial review' proceedings and appeals. Although tribunals in aggregate adjudicate many more such disputes than courts, tribunals and their role as dispensers of 'administrative justice' receive relatively little scholarly attention. This, the first wide-ranging book-length treatment of the subject for many years, compares tribunals in three major jurisdictions: Australia the UK and the US. It analyses and offers an account of the concept of 'administrative adjudication', and traces its historical development from the earliest periods of the common law to the twenty-first century. There are chapters dealing with the design of tribunals and tribunal systems and with what tribunals do, what they are for and how they interact with their users. The book ends with a discussion of the place of tribunals in the 'administrative justice system' and speculation about possible future developments. Administrative Tribunals and Adjudication fills a significant gap in the literature and will be of great value to public lawyers and others interested in government accountability

Controlling administrative power : an historical comparison by Peter Cane( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This wide-ranging comparative account of the legal regimes for controlling administrative power in England, the USA and Australia argues that differences and similarities between control regimes may be partly explained by the constitutional structures of the systems of government in which they are embedded. It applies social-scientific and historical methods to the comparative study of law and legal systems in a novel and innovative way, and combines accounts of long-term and large-scale patterns of power distribution with detailed analysis of features of administrative law and the administrative justice systems of three jurisdictions. It also proposes a new method of analysing systems of government based on two different models of the distribution of public power (diffusion and concentration), a model which proves more illuminating than traditional separation-of-powers analysis"--
Principles of administrative law : legal regulation of governance by Peter Cane( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a clear and concise account of the main principles of administrative law. More than that, it sets those principles in historical, comparative and constitutional perspective. Principles of Administrative Law guides the reader through the complexities of the current law and provides an account of how it developed and where it might go in the years to come. This book tells not only what administrative law is but also what it is about. It explains as well as informs. Unlike a traditional textbook, Principles of Administrative Law offers an uncluttered statement of the essentials of the subject. Unlike an 'outline' or 'introduction', however, it uses this statement of the basics as the foundation for an exploration of the law's origins and conceptual foundations and of its institutional and constitutional context. In addition, it covers various important topics not found in other administrative law books for students. It is a significant addition to the literature on Australian administrative law, and meets a real need for a short book that is both broad and deep in its treatment of this increasingly topical area of law
